Droid owners might be in store for the update they have been longing for. According to the internet rumor mills a customer service rep for the Motorola Droid says that the long awaited Android 2.1 update is set to be released by the end of march. While the update is already available in places like Spain and Bulgaria users here in North America can expect the 2.1 update to be rolled out very soon.
“Marcelo M.: Hi, my name is Marcelo M.. How may I help you?
Kellen B: Hey Marcelo! Since the Spain Milestone has Android 2.1 and the Bulgarian one launches at the end of this week with 2.1, should Droid users expect it this week as well?
Marcelo M.: Within the next 2-3 weeks
Kellen B: Really? That’s awesome news. So by the end of March?
Marcelo M.: Yes
Kellen B: Very cool! Any details on what will be included in the update?
Marcelo M.: Not at this time Kellen, I am sorry
Kellen B: Ok, well thanks for providing me with a more defined timeline than just “soon”. Greatly appreciated.”
While you can never take a customer service rep’s words as gospel this does sound like some very encouraging news for those of you who have been waiting for the Android 2.1 update to be released. It will be very exciting to see what new features are included with this update.
